Doma Hotel’s has revealed it’s $1 million dollar refurbishment at Hotel Realm bar Ostani. To celebrate the re-opening and welcome people back to Ostani there will be an opening party tonight (Friday 26 July) with cocktail tastings, roaming canapés, competitions, pop up bars, happy hour and live music from 4:30pm.

With the new look comes a new menu; flavours from around the globe, including the likes of spicy salmon tartar, tuna poke bowls, pumpkin and ricotta ravioli and sticky pork ribs. The extended kitchen now also includes a char-grill which will add a new flavour to the menu, including grilled steaks, fish and so much more.

The renovation, designed by award-winning design studio Capezio Copeland, involves a new look, inspired by the Australian alpine landscape, a variety of new seating options to cater for small and intimate groups to large functions, a better connection between the indoor and outdoor seating areas and an extension of the kitchen and bar.

“We’ve ensured the dining areas emit an open, warm and social ambiance and that there is more flexibility in the drinking and dining areas combined and a better flow between the indoor and outdoor spaces,” explains Lonergan.

The new fit-out features timber clad walls, and soft lighting, as well as striking new open gas fireplace in the main dining area, set to be the focal point of the space and particularly valuable across Canberra’s frosty winters.
